Jenoptik has acquired traffic control specialist Vysionics.
The company is a leader in enforcement technology. This acquisition opens a new chapter for Vysionics, with a strong parent company allowing further expansion into international markets as well as introducing a range of new products to the UK ITS sector.
Jenoptik are renowned for their advanced enforcement solutions, but so far with very little exposure to the UK market place.
Kevin Chevis, CEO of Vysionics, said: “This is an exciting opportunity for Vysionics, allowing us to bring our industry leading products to a much larger market place. We also look forward to being able to offer more products and services to our existing customer base.”
Jenoptik´s president and CEO Michael Mertin added: "This acquisition is an important step in our growth process and matches our medium and long-term planning perfectly. As world market leader, we gain not only access to the important UK growth market by acquiring Vysionics, but we also complement our innovative product portfolio; the latest technologies of ANPR and 'section control' are important future-oriented products for improved traffic safety on highways worldwide. These technologies significantly strengthen the position of Jenoptik in global road traffic safety projects."
